The bar was recommended in our guidebook, and we did indeed enjoy its pinxtos. The situation is very central close to the Museo San Telmo. Staff was correct, but not overly friendly. They did not seem to speak English, and our efforts to speak Spanish...More

Traditional and excellent food. A must visit as part of your general bar to bar excursion! A very friendly atmosphere and immensely popular with locals. Buzzing in the evening with a fairly young crowd although quite mixed depending on the time of the evening.
